I have been visiting playa Bonita for 3 yrs. now. All my visits up to now were with family/friends. Unfortunately, a visit by ourselves proved to be scary and we were victimized! While swimming in the most beautiful water in an area called Punta Bonita,...More

Very beautiful beach where you can find peace of mind. There were almost no people but it was probably because the weather wasn`t that good. It was in the dry season (January), however, the weather was crazy and and bit rainy.

Walk to the end of the walkway to the left and continue going until you reach the tip of playa bonita. It's called punta bonita. Best sunsets

The nicest of all beaches in Las Terrenas, excellent access and stunning views! Playa Bonita surely deserves its name (Beautiful Beach)

I confess to being annoyed by reviewers who went to just one spot on this long beach, then gave a less than excellent review because they didn't like where they chose. You can spend days exploring and playing along the length of Playa Bonita. There...More

This was prettiest beach on our visit! Quiet, sandy bottom, small waves and turquoise water. Bring bag cooler as no restaurants were open on day that we went.

Excellent beach for spending the day. Is not very accesible but is worth it. We went all the way to the end to a little shack that offer fried fish and lobster. Very rustic but good food.

I suggest you ask on the Las Terrenas forum. You'll get answers from people who live in the area. I was there once only for sunset and it was super calm in the east part, but because of trade winds, it may depend on the... More

Hello: I would say you could have a decent meal from RD$500 to RD$800 per person = US$10 to $15 in any of the restaurants around. Regards, Carlos
